Book Review: Forged in Stone by Alyssa Rose Ivy




Forged in Stone (The Forged Chronicles #1) by Alyssa Rose Ivy 
Genre: New Adult (Fantasy Romance)
Date Published: June 9, 2015
Publisher: Self

The son of darkness is all grown up...

James is a Guardian. He is tasked with protecting the most important person in his world. For eight years he has done his job without complaint, but he has grown tired of living under the shadow of a father who is responsible for the most unimaginable violence and destruction his world has ever known.

Ainsley is at a loss for what to do with her life. She hates her two dead end jobs and the family who betrayed her. She has resigned herself to living one day at a time, but she longs for an escape from her lonely life.

When Ainsley finds James in her bed, their two lives and worlds collide. They may have both found exactly what they need, but the darkness James has been running from his whole life has just caught up. 


Forged In Stone is the first book in the Forged series by Alyssa Rose Ivy. This story takes place in the same world as the Afterglow series. Remember James? This series revolves around him and Ainsley, who is new or at least I don't remember  her from the original series. I love her name though. It's been so long since I've read the Afterglow series, I forgot how much I loved it. It was my introduction to Alyssa Rose Ivy's writing, and I've been hooked ever since. I really like James. He's the misunderstood underdog that wants to be good but thinks he's bad even though he's not. Ainsley is spunky and set in her ways and completely oblivious to the gate to another world in the backyard of the house she's staying at. There are some secret goings ons in Energo, and I don't fully know the extent of it yet, but judging by that ending, I think things are about to get crazy. James and Ainsley have a long, rough, and most likely dark road ahead of them.
